Always a good time at the Gaslight!!!! They make you feel welcome no matter how busy

.

I work for google and when I leave work there are absolutely no 'regular bars' to go to in the area unless I want to spend $15 for a cocktail, which I do not. I want draft beer, tv's, comfy couches, and laid-back people! The only place in the meatpacking to find this type of atmosphere is the Gaslight. Later in the evening, weekends, and G2 next door is a much more happening scene, in fact, usually packed full of good-looking people going to or coming from the decadent clubs nearby. Its comfortable, real, affordable, and the mix of people keeps it entertaining every time. That's probably why they've been in business for almost 15 years.
Here's a tip-Im headed there for Superbowl too: the deal is $60 for an Open Bar throughout the game + buffet!! Tell me you can beat that anywhere in this type of setting..

Pros: price, private event space, comfortable, superbowl deal

Cons: none, it is what it is

Gaslight is a throwback to the old days before electricity, hygiene, and laws against marrying your sister. The management has been particularly successful at recreating a 19th Century environment that existed prior to the introduction of Health Department regulations. It is stale, dirty and nasty, with an angry staff and an apparently inbred crowd of odoriferous patrons who just finished driving their cabs for the day. The drinks are weak, the prices are high, and the music is LOUD. Visiting Gaslight at happy hour is not a happy experience, as you will have to shout at the top of your lungs to be heard over Britney Spears playing at full volume. You may also question the lineage of your fellow patrons, as many of them harbor not only the pungent odor of rancid falafel, but the genetic defects associated with the age-old middle eastern practice of sleeping with one's sister. You will definitely question the safety of your food, if you are brave enough to order one of the putrid offerings from the limited bar menu. Ultimately, Gaslight is not only reminiscent of the days before indoor plumbing, it reminds one that technological progress is a good thing. Stay in the 21st Century and avoid this place like the plagues that ravaged society 150 years ago.

Gaslight is my favorite bar..and this is why. Among the litany of trendy shops, clubs, and people, the Gaslight Lounge stands out as the one comfortable and relatively inexpensive bar in the entire neighborhood. When I walked in this yesterday afternoon, there was a movie being filmed outside and taking up part of the second lounge area known as G2. Since the main entrance was blocked, I walked into the pizzeria next door, which I found out is also part of the group, called Gaslight Pizzeria. After enjoying a surprisingly awesome buffalo chicken slice, I found my way into the main bar area. The hot female bartenders are always happy to serve you pints of tap beer at this warm pub-style lounge without much fuss. The dcor is vintage and warm, if a little tattered, and that only adds to the charm. With lots of cushy seating areas everywhere, I was glad I got there early to reserve a nook with two couches for my group. By the time my friends showed up, the bar was already one-deep with the after work crowd vying for a piece of the hardwood bar. At some point, everyone started dancing. People were packed up to the French doors but the cocktail waitress kept our drinks filled. My friends and I were headed to Son Cubano at 10, but like many times before, I told them to meet me at Gaslight first to pre-game. We ended up dancing there until 11 and when we heard about the line to get in to salsa, we decided to stay at Gaslight! Another excellent night at the coziest bar on the Westside!

As a major events planner in New York City, I am constantly on the lookout for venues - new and old, critically looking at each aspect of the establishment such as its atmosphere, service, food, neighborhood, ownership and turnover rate.

The Gaslight Lounge is one of the only nondiscriminatory venues in the well known pretentious Meatpacking District, open to anyone and everyone in New York looking to have a good time in a popular neighborhood the opportunity to do so. You don't have to be a celebrity, you don't have to order bottle service and give the door guy your credit card (and bribe). You don't have to be under the age of 30, dressed scandalously and female....you can just show up as you, with your friends, go inside and get a drink, some food, and mingle with people from all walks of life.

With that said, this venue is popular, packed on the weekends, and full of people you may or may not like. Everyone is at the bar waiting for a drink, bartenders working hard to get the drinks to each and every demanding, impatient and very thirsty New Yorker crowding up to the bar. Dancing and ??grinding? occur ?? as it does in every club in that neighborhood, including those who blindly make fools of themselves which can actually be entertaining to the more reserved patrons if they have the ability to observe with an open mind.

You may or may not like your experience. It all depends on what you??re looking for. If you??re looking for the flashy NY experience, crawling with super hot desperate singles, disco balls and Lady Gaga flowing through the speakers, go stand in line down the street at another venue. If you??re looking for a dive bar with loud rock music, where you can rock your best hipster look, get way too drunk for the general public and have a great time ?? go to the Village or LES.

If you??re looking for something a little in between ?? the Gaslight just might work out for you.

The dcor is vintage chic, service is decent, and the crowd will differ every night of the week.

It is what it is ?? 4 stars.

Absolute thieves..! Don't even think of going there..!
what happened..? here's what happened..I go there with friends for a couple of drinks before we move on to the bars that would actually count as part of the NYC nightlife. 20 mins and 4 drinks later I sign the check, leave a tip and leave. I find out later that they charged me twice. Once for the original bill amount and then again for the bill amount plus the tip. I imagine it's a genuine mistake and call them back to ask them to take off the charge. Let me try and replay the conversation I had with the retard who picked up the phone.
"hello. gaslight.."
"Hi"
"yeah..gaslight"
"May I speak to a manager or whoever is in charge there plaese..?"
" What about?"
"You guys charged me twice. It's about that."
"(sniggering)"*believe me..this guy actually sniggered* and then he says " yeah ok..let me go get him" and then *click* puts the phone down..!
I call them back..no longer thinking it was a mistake, genuine or otherwise,at all..
this is the conversation that followed after:
" fax me the statement that shows both charges"
"May I have your fax number then"
"I'm not in my office..I'm very far away..Call me in an hour's time and I may be in my office..I don't know my fax number..er..ahh..its a new number.."
"What's your name sir?"
"umm..Joseph"
"Joseph what?"
*click*
Unbelievable..
Just keep away from the place.Period.

A friend invited me to Galight and although, I have done my fair share of drinking in Manhattan, I had never been there. I did a quick search on Citysearch to see reviews. As you will no doubt note, there are pretty much only negative reviews. A trend I noticed was how frequently people referred to this as "belonging in New Jersey". I love the NYC social scene but I also have a soft spot in my heart for dive bars, Jersey pubs, upstate bars where everything is bottom shelf. I still have fun. So, I went to Gaslight, knowing I'd find some value in attending.

Ok - this place was SO deplorable that I was inspired to register with Citysearch just so I can write a review. For all you New Yorkers who don't mind a little kitsch, consider yourself open minded, up for new crowds - DON'T GO!!! The furniture is tired, worn out, dingy. Sit at your own risk.

But the crowd! The crowd! (my eyes! my eyes!) It was like going to an off-campus Frat party, not a jock frat, or stoner frat (those could be fun) but the "Napoleon complex, vocabulary capacity of Homer Simpson, used Daddy's money to pay to bring in strippers, hasn't graduated in 6 years, spouts nasty comments to complete strangers (me and my friends)" type Frat.

I kept asking my friends why we ended up here and their answer was so they could dance. Although we didn't dance, most of those boys with their "professional" type gal pals were. Gyrating. Spilling beer on each other. Like it was Spring Break. Freaknik.

If anything, this makes me want to call Mayor Bloomberg and beg, pray, plead for him to revoke the Cabaret laws so we have more options of dance places in Manhattan. And I can pretend places like Gaslight never existed.

Hate, hate, hate this place. This is the best New York can offer? Feh, I'll stay in Cleveland, there are more hip places there. This lounge is the pits. I thought the meatmarket rocked, well it doesn't here. My friends warned me not to go and they were right.

I love this place because it's the only place in the area where you know you're getting in, yet is still a nice place. Other places in the area are good if you want to stand in line with your fingers crossed, or you feel the need to strut like a peacock with its feathers (cash) flared. There were other relaxed places in the area, but definitely two of the three places I'm thinking of have closed, and they were total dumps. So Gaslight is the last of the Mohicans. From the other reviews, it sounds like the place gets a bit B+T on the weekend, and the bartenders are getting snippy with them, but what do you expect? I'm usually there on a weekday before and/or after visiting friends that live/work in the area. It's usually not too crowded, usually a DJ, and usually the dancing businessman.... I don't know if Gaslight pays him but he's amazing! If you have to be in the MPD, go to Gaslight and have fun and get a buzz before/after being fabulous in the rest of the neighborhood.

I do an event series in NYC and always like to post my props when I find a venue with great management. We've done two events at Gaslight - one in the bar and one in the lounge next door. For both events Matt was totally helpful and accommodating. The staff were also all completely friendly and professional. The venue itself has a great vibe - like an upscale neighborhood bar with character. Highly recommended.

This is the place to start you night ....drinks are cheap the service is excellent and the music rocks!! We sometimes cancel our other plans and end up staying @ Gaslight all night or move into the sister club G2. The best part the drinks are cheap so you can actually buy a pretty girl a drink. The owners are veterans in the business and one of them is always present to accommodate. This was the first lounge in the Meatpacking district. They must be doing something right for 14 years

Honestly, I am a little surprised from most of the reviews that I just read here. I go to Gaslight occasionally with friends from town and I have never noticed or experienced any of the atrocities that people wrote about. I've known Gaslight for years just because this place has been there forever. It was one of the very first bars in the Meatpacking district before even that area became the trendy nightlife hotspot of New York that it is now. The atmosphere is very casual and accomodating for a very diverse crowd. You rarely, almost never see a line at the door. The bouncers will never give you attitude because you came in a group of 3 guys and 1 girl or because you are wearing sneakers. Drinks are good and very very reasonably priced considering the area. I personally never had a bad experience with service, the bar is long enough to find a spot through the crowd and get a drink. However, i think that people who wrote most of the reviews here do not understand that Gaslight is NOT a newly opened 5 star celebrity club. The interior is pretty antique and it is open to everybody. if you expect to go there and be treated like a royalty and find glamour and supermodels, you can rather put on your best outfit, go to Tenjune or Kiss and Fly, wait on line for an hour to get in, and prepare yourself to spend half of your paychek in one night enjoying the glamorous atmosphere and crowd. That is not my type of environment, that's why I prefer to chill at Gaslight or G2 ( I love the intimate curtain surround tables there) with my friends and the diversity of the crowd doesn't bother me.

I should have just gone out for a pizza and beer. It would have saved us all a lot of money. Gaslight really is nothing more then a cheap tourist trap. If this is the new New York then bring back the old days. The owners must be making a mint and laughing all the way to the bank. Looks like all tourists and people who know nothing about nightlife but try to fit in.

i went here with my friends, and the only reason it was a lot of fun was because of the company i was with. the music was good and we danced all night, but the bartenders (2 women) were the meanest people ever. we paid a flat rate for open bar, and after every drink we ordered, one of them would say, "if you take out your tips now, this will go a lot faster." so after we got annoyed with her, we went to the other one which gave us drinks, but then refused after the third drink she gave us and said, "you're not tipping me ENOUGH"
if gaslight wants people coming back, they need to get rid of the two G2 female bartenders they have....otherwise me and the group of 30 people i was with will never go back there again.

Why oh why does this place make money? It is a contrived anomaly of tackiness and poor taste--looks like a TGIF on some strip mall. Please get it out o the meat market. I'd rather slit my wrist then be caught there. Oh my god, what a trap.

I was very upset that I saw a m0use here because this use to be one of my favorites in Hoboken. It's under new management and it seems to have gone downhill. After we alerted our server about the m0use he brought over the manager/owner and they offered one free round of drinks (we were already done with our meal). The m0use was small-but not what you want to see!!!!

I always go to Meat Market hot spots because that is where the cutting edge people. I felt like I was in Carnarsie Brooklyn at the corner bar that my parents go to. The phony decor and tacky lights and faux pas bar really is not New York, or at least not Manhattan. It seems as though the owners must expect tourists to come once and don't care if they never return. I should have read this site before going....most of the reviews agree with mine. This place is a tragic joke.

Cons: the phoniness of the venue

Gaslight is an awful place any night of the week. A lousy place for human beings to hang out any week night and a sickening place to be any weekend. My friends and I will never go back. The bar is really gross and so was the waitress. The music always stinks, the weekend crowd is ugly and gross. I recently discovered that it is better to stay home then go to this dump. The only people who would continue to write good things about this place are the OWNERS.

Gaslight is an awful place any night of the week. A lousy place for human beings to hang out any week night and a sickening place to be any weekend. My friends and I will never go back. The bar is really gross and so was the waitress. The music always stinks, the weekend crowd is ugly and gross. I recently discovered that it is better to stay home then go to this dump. The only people who would continue to write good things about this place are the OWNERS.

Pros: one is not forced to go there

Cons: the entire lounge

.

Gaslight is a great any night of the week. A perfect place for a group of friends to hang out any week night and an excellent place to be any weekend. My friends and I are there at some point, every week. The bar is really big, so no worries about getting a drink and the waitress staff is so accommodating. The music is always great, the weekend crowd is good looking and fun. I recently discovered G2, right next door. It is a beautiful more intimate space also with great music and great drinks.

I had high expectations because I heard so much about the meat market but Lotus was closed and the lines at the Gansvoort were too long hence I went to the Gaslight--it is a bridge and tunnel disney like place with zero manhattan cache. Obviously the owners figure people will come once and they depend on these one time tourists. Avoid at all costs--

worst place in area and perhaps worst place in lower Manhattan--not fun, awful. My friends were actually angry at me for dragging them there. I was warned about the terrible service and plastic room but took a chance--what a rip off.

Probably my favorite place in the area. Low key and fun. Plays the kind of music everyone loves to dance and sing drunkenly too. Nice people. Nice atmosphere.

I don't write reviews very often but Gaslight is an exceptional place that more than deserves a 5 star rating! Great drinks, very good prices, a friendly staff, unbelievable music and a really fun and attractive crowd!
I have been there twice in the past week.

I met one of the owners, Matt; he was really accomodating and friendly. Matt is now working with my friend and me as we plan our BDay party in the Gaslight VIP room.

Gaslight is the perfect place!

I had a fantastic time at Gaslight the other night! They have the best deals on drinks in the downtown area. My friends and I will be returning soon.

I frequently go out to bars in the Meatpacking District and none can compare to the intimate setting offered at Gaslight. It was my first time at Gaslight this past week and I was thoroughly pleased with the accommodating staff and reasonably priced drinks. Most other bars in the Meatpacking District would have charged double for liquor and the servers would have been unkind. Gaslight promotes such a welcoming atmosphere. It is a very mellow bar scene, in which you are free to kick back and relax or mingle with the handsome partygoers. I will certainly be back at Gaslight for another round of drinks!!!

What attitude --for a small smelly bar the staff sure has attitude. I could see it if the place were packed or if there were hotties there but with all the trolls smoking away it was a nightmare. I was stunned at the mess it all turned out to be. Feh

Pros: near hip bars

Cons: not a hip bar

I also went to a birthday party in the private room and felt like I was six years old at a children's party at FAO Schwartz. I mean, grow up--we are adults in New York, not sanitized children from Saratoga Springs. If I wanted to attend such a childish birthday party put on by the management I would have spend the time with my niece and her friends. I also did not like being treated as meat by the bartender. I complained to security and got nowhere.

Pros: I only stayed half an hour

Cons: I did not have to pay to get in

this place is nice up right until it gets overly packed. then its really hard to get a drink, very noisy, and the staff isn't the most friendly. the prices are pretty good and the place is pretty cool

Went to a friends B-day party In the VIP room downstairs and had a great time. Great room for a small party staff was friendly. The heat was on a little to high though

I never thought I would again feel as though I was back in High School but this brought back the worst memories. Tacky pimply faced man who most likely never had a prom date and girls waiting to be asked to dance and then looking at her friends as though this was her first dance ever. What a nightmare. Remember the movie 'Nightmare on Elm Street?" Well this is the remake "Nightmare on 14th Street."

Pros: free to get in

Cons: a waste land once you get in

worst new year's eve of my life--depressing, bridge and ferry crowd. We should have stayed home, watched the ball drop and drank instead of spending New Years eve at this plastic bar. People were bored, depressed and weary of being bored. It was totally lackluster. They exploit people for cash and figure there are others suckers out to visit from out of town.

Pros: you can drink to forget where you are

Cons: decor and fake atmosphere

WOW...bartenders are rude when taking your drink order, (in the Gaslight side but in the G2 side very nice to customers)...I've been there on a thurs, fri and sat and it s the same deal (same rude irish bartender) so I've decided to finally write a review. It's smelly, dirty bar, dirty glasses, uncomfortable, pretty much its not worth your money or time. Yes there's no cover and they let ANYONE in! Ouch, desperate! Make it a little more exclusive and you'll get a better crowd...it's so B&T and trashy! Music is usually okay but there's no room to dance, there's no drink menu and no draft beer. Some of these reviews were definitley written by the owners (clearly the one by adian collins who is so descriptive of the look of the bar and the "celebs" that stop by) years ago because fast forward to the current reviews and they are all saying DON'T GO! Anyway, its not a fun place, I suggest finding somewhere else in the millions of other bars that there are in the city.

Cons: bathrooms, dirty, TOO crowded

I went there with three friends and we all were miserable but could not leave because another friend was an hour late. The place is very creepy and the staff really rude. It is clear that the owners are in this for the cash and assume clientele will not come back. This is true as everyone seems bridge and tunnel and not very hip.

If I could rate it lower I would. What are they trying to do, putting this bridge and tunnel joint in the meat market area. The owners have zero taste and attract non manhattanites because any sophisticated New Yorker would not go near this tacky joint. Even one star is pushing it.

I entered and thought I was in Boise IND. I traveled a great deal of miles to get to the meat market and for what? A tacky, tired retreat of a tired tacky bar that I never thought would be in a trendy area. It was badly lite, poorly decorated and smelled of cheap perfume. What happened to the good old days when a trip to the village meant something you could not get at a strip mall? I found this bar shocking and sad. Whoever put it together should quickly move it to Boise where it belongs.

I love cozy fun places but this was not one of them. Everyone seemed to be on their way somewhere else. I could not start a conversation with anyone-the music sucked, the service worse and the place had no feel for a meat market joint. Sure they take in the dough but it is because of the location. I can't believe anyone but a tourist who did not know better would ever come back. Why does this place have so many stars in their rating? No one writing in likes the place. A good place for drunks and weepers but not for people wanting a good time. The bartenders were curt and slow. If this is nightlife in the meatmarket them I'll stay in SOHO.

Where did all these rude people come from? Bad drinks, dirty glasses, lipstick smears on them and wet counter. I went to meet a friend but got there 15 minutes late. My friend hated the place and left without waiting. The music was so tired and bad. People were coming in and leaving rather quickly. Lots of talk about where to go next. Seems like a meeting spot before people go out for a fun time. Next time I meet my friend at the Diner across the street before we go to a real night spot.

I went here for my birthday night out with three of my best friends to drink and look around and party, party, party. However, it was BORING and after about one and a half hours we left and split ways. We would have had a better time stayIng home and had a lot more money to show for it. The place was very plastic, people were very Scrasdale and the music was really really awful. The only thing going for this place is the location, but location alone is not near enough. The bathroom was really awful and that alone was enough to keep me away. They need to clean the place on a regular basis.

Wow, this place is awful. It is tired and tacky. I thought this was the happening neighborhood and I felt like I was in a strip mall. It was like people dressed up and nowhere to go. Stunk of cheap perfume and polyester shirts. You could tell that 90 per cent of the people were from New Jersey. People walking around looking for a mate and then having a sad look on their faces. There are hundreds of fun spots in new york and lots near the meat market so why go here? Gaslight has taken up a great location and ruined the corner. There are more "with it" bars where I live on the upper east side--is this the new happening New York/ Ghee I hope not, please, I hope not

What a terrible place. I stayed one hour and felt that I wasted an hour of my life. I read all the reviews above and they had to have been written by the owners because I don't know anyone who likes this place or anyone who would write such self serving reviews like the one by Aiden Collins. Why a one year old could have written that one. On my way out I slipped on the wet floor and had to limp to a cab. People who work there are rude.
If you want to go to a bar like this you might as well go to some hick Long Island town. I felt like I was back in West Palm Beach visiting the elderly parents. That is not fair as there are nicer places in West Palm.

Snotty bartender on the night I was there. Place wasn't crowded yet and we waited forever for a drink while the bartender shot the S*** with people down the other end of the bar. Made it seem like she was doing us a favor when we were finally served.

I like this bar! My friends and I had so much fun there on Sat. night. The music and the crowd were great.
Plus,there is no cover to get in. Some people might think it's small and a bit crowded but at least we got space to dance all night!!!!

Went on a saturday night before club. Was very busy, loads of guys, few girls, too many guys in fact you couldnt move in the place. Hard to get served and hard to move round, constantly needing to push your way through people. They should either make guys needs girls to get in or knock the space next door which they own into one big space.

DON'T OPEN TABS AT THE BAR.

After the bartender made me stand at the bar for 20 minutes while I waited for my check, she finally admitted that she had didn't have my credit card. But she didn't lose it - she closed out SOMEONE ELSE'S CHECK and gave my card to them. And she blamed it on the bus boy. (Anyone who has worked in a restuarant or bar knows that busboys don't close out checks.)

She was not apologetic and told me to write my name and number on a bar napkin - they would "call me if the card came back". I then waited 15 minutes to speak to the manager who was equally rude and un-apologetic.

Gaslight is one of the cheapest in the areas, never a cover charge. The bartenders are always quick and staff friendly. A definate celebrity hotspot. The place to go to have a great time without hurting the pocket. There is major eye candy for both the ladies and men.
